Loss has a way of changing everything.
For years, time flew by in a frenzy of things that seemed important in the moment. Seconds turned into minutes that turned into hours, days & years.
Many things had value and tucked memories deep into my heart.
But…if I’m honest, I also wasted precious time on things that just didn’t matter that much at all.
There’s the funny thing about time. It’s gone in a vapor & doesn’t stop for anyone. It doesn’t care about the value of how we spend it. The clock just keeps ticking.
I can tell you, there are seasons when it feels like time stops.
Grief. Loss. Tragedy.
For me it was a phone call. Years later…an unexpected letter.
The hands on the clock seemed to stop turning, and I desperately wanted to turn them back.
Eventually, I could hear the ticking of the clock again…but my reality became an unplanned, unexpected existence.
In the middle of what I never saw coming was my Savior…a shelter…hiding place…an anchor.
I want you to know…if it feels like your clock has stopped moving, and the world is rushing by all around you…I’ve been there too. Loss has a way of forever changing some things.
It ushers in different. A different perspective. A different way.
Please…don’t ever forget how precious time is. The moment we have is right now. We can use it for His glory if we shift what we treasure.
I may not understand all that happens in this world, but I do know it’s temporary. This earth is not my home.
I’m here to praise Him…even in the storms…especially in the storms.
Dear friend, if you’re like me and are living days in a life you barely recognize…run to Him. He is enough. He is the way, the truth and what real life is all about.
He came down to save us and help us get back home!
